Hahahhhaa, great headline.

I think some judges were once at a loss for how the would word the judgement overturning these laws. Now that they have legal precedent and verbiage, they're quicker to sign on.

This whole gay marriage things means that my current marriage is completely null and void. I gots to go find me another man to gay marry.

Only a few states so far.  Several judges have found the bans unconstitutional, and the states continue to try to find ways around those decisions.  Same sex couples can no longer get married in Utah, for example, after a brief window of opportunity opened by a single judge's decision.

I can remember when "gay" (in that sense) was used mostly as an adjective, and could be prefixed to the nouns "men" or "women" with equal ease.  In other words, "gay" was a synonym for "homosexual".  But nowadays, I am told, "gay women" is an oxymoron.  Who gets to decide this stuff, anyway?

Conservatives here in NC are already losing their shiat over the judge ruling VA's anti-same sex marriage amendment is unconstitutional. NC has both a law and a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriages, and they know it's only a matter of time before they're both overturned in court. Most of them are whining that NC voters should have the right to decide such things in their own state, not realizing that was the same argument used to keep blacks from voting, or desegregating the schools, or allowing women to vote, etc, etc.

Good news.

But of course this means that the Republicans are well on their way to having another perpetual wedge issue like they do with abortion. It's not like the religious right is suddenly going to be okay with Adam and Steve being joined in the bonds of holy matrimony just because a few liberal activist judges say that equal protection before the law applies to godless sodomites too.

When the deep red states start flipping it's going to be bedlam.

The GOP is eventually going to realize that tying their fortunes to the zealots isn't going to work for them in the long run. This might lead to a third (Tea) party, and will ensure that the Dems will win for a few cycles, at least.

They need to face the fact that "reality has a liberal bias" as Colbert put it.

Some women don't like being "labeled" as "lesbian" because of all the assumptions that word carries, so prefer to be called "gay".

Yes, I know a few women like that. They're otherwise quite relaxed about things.

Arizona reverse their ban? It'd have to be the courts. I don't see the party of old whitey siding with the times. They remember when you had to travel uphill both ways to see a straight marriage. In 3 feet of sand. In a full suit and tie. In July. When it was 175 out. And they liked it.

Quite a lot of Christians don't regard the central message of Jesus as being 'nail all those arse-bandits to a tree'. But a majority seem to.

I've often pondered the question of who are the losers if gay marriage happens. It certainly doesn't affect my marriage to my wife. Adam and Steve can get hitched on the front lawn over the road and it has zero impact on me. But I wonder if I was closetted, gay and straight-married-with-kids to appease a homophobic family if it wouldn't be a big added stress on me.

And then you look at who opposes gay marriage. It's the churches which encourage you to take your problems to your priest (confessing) or your pastor (spiritual guidance). These guys know how many of their own flock are struggling because, simply, they really love the c*ck and this is why they're so embarrasingly loud about the whole issue. The Pope has actually had to come out and say there are bigger issues than gay marriage and even then he's being shut down by Bishops (or was that when he suggested atheists can get into heaven and there was a lot of 'clarification statements' entirely denying this because basically it's their business model out the window).

Just my little conspiracy theory but you disprove it.

LtDarkstar: The dominoes also represent that time is almost up for our country. If all the states pass laws allowing gay marriage we will see the destruction of this country very fast... we approach the end-times and the allowance of this outright SIN to be passed into law while desecrating the holy marriage bond between a man and a woman will bring swift judgement upon us. Babylon will fall because of this.

Only a few states so far.  Several judges have found the bans unconstitutional, and the states continue to try to find ways around those decisions.  Same sex couples can no longer get married in Utah, for example, after a brief window of opportunity opened by a single judge's decision.


Utah hasn't "found a way" around anything. They are appealing the judge's decision, and while it is being reviewed, there is a temporary stay on new marriages. This is standard, not some sneaky move around the system, it's how things work. Utah laid all of their money on the "what about the children?' horse, though, and that guy just doesn't have the legs to finish out the race, but this stay isn't because anyone is "finding a way" around anything, it's exactly how the legal process works.

We are having the same argument here in Indiana. I gotta say, fark that shiat. I don't get it.

1. The public are morons.

And more importantly ...

2. Government is supposed to protect its citizens, not bow to majority opinion. Democracy is mob rule. It doesn't matter if 75% of the citizens want it; if it's wrong, government is supposed to stop it.

Funny, but one small overstep by the last legistature may have killed the whole thing. It's glorious.


I believe that some of the non-batshiat crazy GOPers are glad the amendment is gone foe two reasons.  First there was a very good chance Indiana voters would have defeated the anti gay marriage amendment..  Remember, Indiana went Obama in 2008.  Second, an anti gay marriage amendment on the ballot would bring out a lot of progressives to vote in an off year election, and Indiana Republicans hate it when progressives vote.

Monkeyhouse Zendo: Good news.

But of course this means that the Republicans are well on their way to having another perpetual wedge issue like they do with abortion. It's not like the religious right is suddenly going to be okay with Adam and Steve being joined in the bonds of holy matrimony just because a few liberal activist judges say that equal protection before the law applies to godless sodomites too.

When the deep red states start flipping it's going to be bedlam.


Like other issues they've effectively lost on, I imagine they'll never really give up the fight and instead try to nickle-and-dime the issue in a hundred little ways that manage to galvanize their base without actually effecting any meaningful change.

They'll whine when they can't teach it as an abomination in southern social studies classes, whine when cartoons and family movies start portraying it as normal, whine when the first history books come out that portray them as the villains, whine when a movie based on these court cases wins an Oscar.

It'll never fully go away, but eventually the zealots will just become background noise.

No, the argument about it being a violation of religious freedom is the dumbest.

Your church doesn't want same sex marriages, so NO church or those who don't have a faith HAVE to follow these myopic interpretations of Leviticus. While demanding bacon, the right to reap ALL your fields, and hold property into perpetuity. It is awful selective reading, but folks are trying to force that selective reading on everyone.

Moneyquote:

"Usually, as here, the tradition behind the challenged law began at a time when most people did not fully appreciate, much less articulate, the individual rights in question. For years, many states had a tradition of segregation and even articulated reasons why it created a better, more stable society. Similarly, many states deprived women of their equal rights under the law, believing this to properly preserve our traditions. In time, even the most strident supporters of these views understood that they could not enforce their particular moral views to the detriment of another's constitutional rights. Here as well, sometime in the not too distant future, the same understanding will come to pass." Link

That "does the bible really say that God blesses homosexuals"  panel was a great opportunity for them to go ahead and say that God blesses everyone, even if he doesn't approve of their particular lifestyle choices.

Expect to see situations like...the courts say that the state can't deny marriage licenses to same sex couples, but none of the offices that issue marriage licenses will give them to same sex couples.  Any rogue clerk who lets a same sex couple slip through loses his/her job.

Remember, it took National Guard troops to integrate the schools.  I expect some of the states to resist same sex marriage to the same degree.

DO NOT WANT Poster Girl: flondrix: Zagloba: You know, a decent fraction of teh gheys don't have wangs in the first place.

I can remember when "gay" (in that sense) was used mostly as an adjective, and could be prefixed to the nouns "men" or "women" with equal ease.  In other words, "gay" was a synonym for "homosexual".  But nowadays, I am told, "gay women" is an oxymoron.  Who gets to decide this stuff, anyway?

Some women don't like being "labeled" as "lesbian" because of all the assumptions that word carries, so prefer to be called "gay".

Yes, I know a few women like that. They're otherwise quite relaxed about things.


What assumption, besides homosexuality, does that word carry?  That she's Lebanese?

flondrix: Bendal: Most of them are whining that NC voters should have the right to decide such things in their own state, not realizing that was the same argument used to keep blacks from voting, or desegregating the schools, or allowing women to vote, etc, etc.

Oh, they realize it.  They think the states should get to decide those things, too.

The saddest bit is that buggery wasn't even remotely why Sodom was destroyed:

Ezekiel 16:49 - Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.

Sort of explains why the red states keep getting hit with tornadoes, drought, and floods, doesn't it?

I have also heard about this, and I also don't get it.  I am a super-mega-ultra lesbian, but I pretty much use lesbian and gay interchangeably, and I really tend to use "gay" more than anything else because I still think of it as gender-neutral and it's also shorter.

I also tend to call things "gay" in a super-hip-ironic way to be funny, but as with most of my incredible, witty humor, my wife never laughs at the joke.

My powers include "bringing women to multiple orgasms," "cats," and "sensible shoes."  Some powers are better than others.

Actually, my real super power is being able to flirt with/check out just about any woman without that woman getting upset with me.  I think, since I'm another woman, they're not threatened by me.  They think I'm just complimenting their shirt--"that is such a great color/cut on you"--while I'm really just staring at their tits.

From here:
Seventeen states - CA, CT, DE, HI, IA, IL, ME, MD, MA, MN, NH, NJ, NM, NY, RI, VT, and WA - plus Washington, D.C. have the freedom to marry for same-sex couples.

Three states offer broad protections short of marriage. CO allows civil union, while OR and NV offer broad domestic partnership. WI has more limited domestic partnership.

Federal judges have recently struck down gay marriage bans in three other states: UT, OK, and VA--all those rulings are stayed pending appeal.

Here in Australia we recently had a stupid little controversy when a lady working in a government office emailed out a list of words to which Aussies commonly add the suffix 'o'. (It's true that we do this. My name's Dave so I cop 'Davo' about once a week. I'm about to head down the bottle-o to pick up some vino. It's just a dumb national pastime.)

Here's the link to the news article (SFW unless your desk is next to a leso, in which case they apparently go batshiat crazy?).  http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-02-05/public-service-head-sorry-for-o f fensive-email/5239140

So yeah, turns out 'lesbian' is an objectionable word to some gay chicks. No one wants to tell us why though.

tommyl66: Endive Wombat: Until someone (a conservative) can make a logical argument against gay marriage, that does not rely on Jesus, The Bible, etc. I have to stick with loving the idea of equality for all in this country.

Personally, as well as I can "see the other side" of an argument pretty damn well, in this case, I cannot fathom a single argument that makes any logical sense to keep marriage defined as being between one man and one woman.

If two women get married and start a new life together, who is going to kill the spiders in the house?


Dear God in HEAVEN... if that isn't  THE most bigoted and sexist comment...

Are you dim?  Everyone knows that you can't have a lesbian couple without cats.  The cats kill the spiders.

It's true, but Rome was still a nation with it's ruler also installed as a god with his own state religion, and if they didn't like you for whatever reason, they were always willing to use those cards to kill you.  It's basic theocratic structure is what eventually became the Catholic Church, and when the emperor was eventually a Christian, boom, whole thing became a theocratic state.  It's just that they mostly didn't bother people, especially in the outlying territories, because they valued the general stability that brought in the taxes.

Meh. It still falls short of a theocracy. Yes, they had an official religion, but it was neither strictly enforced or codified into law. Other religions were accepted and even, in certain ways encouraged.

Admittedly, that changed a lot with the rise of Christianity, but that's Christianity, not Rome.


Also, my original point in responding was OP sounded like a "Jews killed Jesus" type.

I didn't say morality laws got Christ killed. I said laws.


And if you look carefully, you'll see I was responding to soporific, who was responding to you.

Though I probably did confuse things by calling him OP. Probably should have said "the person I was responding to"
